those nuclear weapons. the united states also was going to place sanctions on ukraine if it did not give up its nuclear weapons. on the very beginning, there were tensions between russia and ukraine at the end of the cold war. those tensions go back even earlier, when khrushchev gave the crimea over to the ukraine and russian nationalists opposed that. back to that in a minute. the main point here is that tensions from the end of the cold war started. 994, there was an agreement that ukraine would give up its nuclear weapons in exchange for russia, u.s., and european security assurances that all of the states would guarantee ukrainian territory. that is what has been questioned. that agreement in 1994, the budapest agreement, was a neutralized ukraine and all the states guaranteed its territorial integrity. that is basically what has fallen apart with putin going into the crimea. marketas often seen as a tactician. how on earth did he not see this one coming? there was already a threat to the black sea fleet at its main base. we have had a country which has , some would say, by a kleptoc

will be crucial. if vladimir putin sends more troops into crimea and eastern ukraine, what the united states do? >> there's a growing sense of resolve in europe and around the world against any aggression by putin in the crimea or beyond. and i think that it will be met with negative reaction. certainly at the political level, but beyond that, it could include sanctions, as well. >> and what about the issue of sanctions? senator harry reid said he doesn't think it the united states should act alone basically saying if u.s. allies express any kind of hesitation, there would be a big problem. some people criticized him and said that was a weak thing to say. it's a fact of things to say, 13 of the top 15 -- >> at this point the administration reached out to the leaders in europe. i met with the president and senator reid this afternoon. i know the conversations are under way. but they're waiting to see now what putin's press conference was all about. it appeared he hit the pause button. i don't want to overread what he had to say. i hope he is trying to take into consideration what happened to his
